Under a tree

Standard

One hour before high noon, the end of his climb finds him sitting in the arms of an olive tree nurturing shadow – wrapped in dusted white cotton, his eyes pierce through the crowd, looking at everyone and no one.

//\\//\\

He said, “Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds – when he finds, he will
become troubled, when he becomes troubled, he will be astonished and he will rule over
the All.
The Hand of…

\\//\\//

You do not realize who I am from what I say to you, but you  either love the tree and hate its fruit or love the fruit
and hate the tree.”
TRIPTYCH – Sacrifice

//\\//\\

 “When you disrobe without being ashamed and take up your garments and
place them under your feet like little children and tread on them, then will you see the son
of the living one, and you will not be afraid
TRIPTYCH – Stabat Mater

\\//\\//

Where someone is alone, I tell you, I am by his side; lift a stone and you will find me, split a wood and I am there.”
A tale of things invisible to mortal sight

//\\//\\

At the back of the crowd a bearded man stands shrouded by his keffiyeh; desert winds echo the last words in his mind :
split a wood and I am there

” The eternal part of our being is conscious of the timeless essence of life & is aware that the past is nothing but a memento of the present and tomorrow a dream of the now. The very thing meditating & singing from within, remains always inside the boundaries of the primordial instant that scattered the stars into the cosmos.” Kh.Gibran

  1. A powerful sculpture and elements. Powerful too the words, especially: “lift a stone and you will find me, split a wood and I am there.” – who could fail to consider their origin story at this, no matter their faith?

    The angel figure element is spectacular! The bearded man photo is cool.

    If this is your Six in response to ‘tree’ then don’t forget to link it when the time comes for linking… jus’ sayin’, dear Wizard, ay! 😎

    • My dear Mage, again you split the waters of confusion opening a path to the heart of things!

      Thank you is an understatement.

      It was initially; but then I thought that since the majority of the sentences are not mine but from the Hellenic Oxyrhynchus Fragments, the Gospel of Thomas, ( which btw is considered Apocrypha by many Churches since it cancels their way of operation) –
      it isn’t right to link it. Thus, I won’t.
      Thank you though mate; it is always good to know someone has got my back.

      (PS: you are vindicated! It seems I write like Arthur Conan Doyle 🤣🤣🤣, check the Thread)

      • Good on ya Wizard, I understand! Next time you’ll link up I’m sure. You have the art and the words to do it!

        Oh… Monsieur Conan Le Doyle, eh? 😁!!! You magnificent bloody Holmes you!

        That writer-link Chris gave is crazy int it… I added one of my AI stories into the generator and got Neil Gaiman! Okay, from a comic book POV that makes sense as I had comics in mind.
        I then entered one of my Petit Pierre stories and got friggin H.P. Lovecraft, wtf! 😃
